What is worth knowing about recovery after stroke?

  • Rehabilitation after stroke is governed by the rule: the sooner you start the better. If you start in a week, the full recovery can be achieved in 2-3 months. If you start in a month, the positive results will be seen approximately after a year. The reason is the loss of brain’s neuroplasticity (an ability to adapt to inner or outer changes).
  • Medication treatment doesn’t replace stroke rehabilitation but only complements it and increases the effectiveness.
  • Patients after stroke are in difficult emotional condition therefore they need the help of experts. In specialized clinics they are treated by neuropsychologists that significantly enhances the recovery process.
  • It is very important to restore speech and swallowing functions during the rehabilitation. Many hospitals abroad employ special speech therapist for this reason.
  • Restoration of self-serving skills is the minimum effect of stroke rehabilitation.
  • Delayed rehabilitation and long maintenance in bed may cause some dangerous complications for the patient: bed sores, thrombosis or pneumonia.
  • You may be transferred to medical center for rehabilitation through medical aviation services (flight with all necessary personnel and equipment costs from $10,000).
  • BUT! Stroke may be followed by serious cardiovascular disorders, so the flight is possible only by the attending doctor’s consent.

Rehabilitation techniques for the patients who suffered a stroke

  • One of the first methods used at the early stage of stroke rehabilitation is verticalization of the patient. The Clinic uses a special device – verticalizer in order to avoid bed sores and minimize stress on the patient’s vestibular apparatus after a long-term lying.
  • It is important for the patient after stroke to train his/her walking skills regularly. Lokomat robotized system helps the patient to develop these movements.
  • Grasping reflexes and fine motor movements are usually restored using special devices for the whole arm and fingers.
  • For the simultaneous training of all limbs the Kladruby Rehabilitation Center specialists use MOTOmed exerciser.
  • Hydrotherapy is very useful for those who suffered a stroke. It includes relaxing baths, massages and intensive swimming workouts.
  • The Center has a very serious approach to occupational therapy – returning the patient’s self-serving abilities. It has developed an intensive program which provides not only training of basic skills (feeding, toilet, writing, dressing) but even classes of swimming and driving. Besides, here the patients may attend several circles such as sewing and art workshops, locksmith and carpentry workshop, fitness and computer rooms.
